The Prima Donnas

Drugs, Sex, and Discotheques


Punk wave, new wave, no wave: this CD is overflowing with waves.

Punk rockers in dayglo boots and those wrap around sunglasses. These British boys broke up in the summer of 1998, leaving us with this solid retrospective of those final days. Muddy and deep keyboard sighs against droning choruses and excited tin can beats. Makes me feel young again.
